The following projects are not guaranteed not to leave a mess, but they provide a sure way for you to have fun with your kids while making Easter decorations. Decorating for Easter is a great way to engage with your kids and participate in simple, themed projects with them.
Easter Bunny Garland
A garland of Easter bunnies makes a great decoration and it's a fun and easy project for kids. To make this, cut bunny rabbit shapes out of pastel-colored paper and string them together with a blue, purple, yellow, or pink piece of string. You can hang this around your house, or attach them to sticks and use them as cupcake toppers. For an easy Easter bunny shape, download a silhousette of a bunny and use it as a template for your cutting.
For a step beyond simply dying eggs for Easter, consider decorating them to look like baby birds. After you empty the egg (emptying the egg will ensure that your creation will last), dye it a solid color, like blue or yellow. As it dries, cut little wings and beaks out of crepe paper. Using white glue, attach the crepe paper wings and beak, and paint two small dots for eyes to the eggs to make them look like baby birds looking up at their mothers. You can have your child make any type of creature he wants; let his imagination run wild!
You can make a sweet dessert with your kids as a part of an Easter project. Purchase or prepare a mix for white cupcakes, and use food coloring to dye the batter pink, blue, yellow, or purple. Use food-safe dye to color white frosting, also. Once the cupcakes have baked and cooled completely, decorate them Easter-style, with colored frosting. Use gel frosting to draw bunnies or Easter-themed designs on the tops of the cupcakes.
